The Undisputed Best Weight Of Fargo

I know, I know—I shouldn't be so wishy washy. The other day I said 120 was the best weight at Fargo. But new information can yield a different opinion.

Junior 138 is the stuff of legends. I think you can already pencil in the 138 winner for OW. This weight is that deep.

The Contenders

No. 1, Nick Lee, Indiana - The Penn State commit already has a Fargo title to his name. Though he's currently the No. 1-ranked wrestler in the country, this crop of seniors (McKee, Yates, Storr, Happel, etc) could make Lee an underdog to win it all.

Lee takes out Dom Demas at the Cadet World Team Trials.

No. 2, Kaden Gfeller, Oklahoma - The recent Oklahoma State commit is also a cadet Fargo champ who has been successful and busy on the national scene. Gfeller is phenomenal when he gets on top and is great out of short offense as well.

Gfeller takes out Fargo finalist Brock Hardy at Junior Duals.

No. 4, Mitchell McKee, Minnesota - McKee continues to add to an already immensely populated list of accolades. The future Minnesota Gopher was the Fargo freestyle champion two years ago, and is looking to go out with a Fargo double after already winning Junior Greco on Tuesday.

McKee and Gfeller had a great one at Junior Duals.

No. 5, Rudy Yates, Illinois - Yates is a familiar face, but is not a particularly experienced freestyler, which is strange when you consider Illinois' track record. Yates was a late addition to the 138 mix. He can go on his feet with anyone in this group. It's the top/bottom that could make or break the future Northern Iowa Panther.

No. 7, Kanen Storr, Michigan - One of my favorites of this class. He places everywhere he wrestles, and he wrestles in as many elite tournaments as he can. He's good at getting to legs and has a mean front headlock.

No. 8, Carter Happel, Iowa - Not too shabby when a four-time Iowa state champion and former cadet world team member is the sixth-highest ranked guy in the list.

No. 9, Ben Freeman, Michigan - Freeman is already a three-time Michigan State champ, a FloNationals and Fargo finalist, and has been active on the freestyle scene. He's dangerous with his two on one—if guys can't clear it, he'll go far.
